IC1s


IC1S - Growing up, Growing Down -
Summer's nearly here and band's are starting to get their new releases out there and IC1s are no different.  June 3rd sees the release of their latest single 'Growing Up, Going Down'.  Ralph's had a sneak peak at the new single and it's a proper rock n rolla.  It's a guitar driven anthem that'll sit well with any Festival crowd and a definite hat tip to their musical influences.

From the first guitar riff it grabs you, shakes you and doesn't put you down until the last note!






Ic1s are Daniel Coburn - Vocals, Jesse James - Guitars, John Campbell - Guitars, Andy Faulkner- Drums and Jacob Osman - Bass and they're all in your face Indie pop at its absolute best.

IC1s debut single ‘Levitate’ saw success as the 2nd most downloaded new entry in the ITunes Alternative Singles Chart in its week of entry, resulting in a chart position of #195 in iTunes Top 200. Follow up single ‘Karma’ featured on Soccer AM and in Q Magazines as 'Track of The Day'. The track peaked at #40 in the alternative charts during in Christmas week with the band donating all profit to UK homelessness charity Shelter.






In 2011 band worked alongside Gary Powell (The Libertines) and his 25 Hour Convenience Store label.  Oasis discoverer, and all-round musical hero-maker Alan Mcgee, The Stone Roses’ Mani, Steve Lamacq and many more can all be credited as fans.  The band have since shared venues and festival stages with indie giants such as The View, The Charlatans, The Cribs, The Rifles and mainstream acts such as Tinie Tempah.







April 2012 saw the band release 'Not Perfect' as part of a compilation entitled ‘Emerging Icons’ curated by Kaiser Chiefs.  In February 2012 the band headlined the final date of ‘HMVs Next Big Thing Festival’ and were invited to play The Olympic & Paralympic Games on the Emerging Icons Festival Stage in the Olympic Park.

If this single gets the airplay it deserves then we should be seeing them hit the Festival circuit next year.
